Concerned about Sango Kaku (Coral Bark)
We recently re-did landscaping in front of new house and planted this Japanese maple. We roto-tilled the beds and added lots of organic equine compost beforehand, along with some gypsum to help break up the clay (the dirt was pretty poor). We also put a thick layer of mulch over the top. It's been in the ground for about 1.5 months now. A few days after it was planted we had 95 degree weather for about 4 days in a row. I kept it watered and have continued to check the ground regularly to make sure it's not getting too dry. It's on a drip and gets about 20min of water 3 days a week. It can also get a bit windy in the morning and afternoons. Also, front of our house faces full North, so gets sun but lots of shade as well (it's in a corner right near kitchen window so I think it's pretty protected). The leaves were green and now this is happening, am I over or under watering or is this tree sick? Please help, thanks!
